location. he could win but he has been severely hammered by rivals outside of a gop mainstream. >> to elect me the country has to change. you have to go back to believing in the constitution and personal liberties and a different foreign policy. >> rick santorum may be the come from behind conservative with a wave of last minute support from christian conservatives make up the votes and could be missed by half of the population polls. >> do what is right for this country and in the next few days fight for it. >> he went to church in iowa but is looking ahead and dismissing other's success as short lived. >> we are going to be able to go forward when some of the other candidates may do okay in iowa when it comes to running a national campaign they are going to falter. >> newt gingrich who led the polls a month ago and michelle back m bachmann are struggling to not be dead last in the caucus. the record will be if they break
118,000. it's also true that there are a large number of undecideds. in the caucus four years ago one of every four caucus goers were undecided. 40 percent are likely to change their minds. exactly what are they and how do they work? answers to this question is shannon breen in iowa tonight. >> across the state there are 800 spots that will become caucus parties on tuesday night. this is a church in iowa that seats more than 900. they expect about a thousand on tuesday night to cast these ballots. here's how it works. everybody has to be in place by 7:00 local time. they can give speeches for about 3 minutes. once that is wrapped up everybody gets a piece of paper they mark the candidates they want to see with the gop nominee. they are counted on sight tallied announced and officially
go to the iowa gop. it takes patience and commitment to participate. >> not necessarily easy to get to a caulk cause and support your candidate. they are going to talk about a cold january night and say i am here to support my particular candidate. this is after months and months of reviewing their issues seeing their mailers watching their ads and most importantly seeing nem person. >> if you want to cast one of these ballots you have to be 18 on or by november 6th by the presidential election and you have to be a registered republican. here's good news for procrastinators you have to show up on-site and you have the right id you can register on-site to become a republican. within minutes you can be voting in the caucus. thank you very much. the iowa caucuses of course will only have one winner but can the candidates who don't manage to make it in the top two or three still claim some sort of victory.

tea parties being more they want elect ability this time. they are concerned about the economy like anybody else. they might go for the candidates that they think goes the whole way. >> you talk about evelle ga-- evangelicals in iowa. what are they looking for in a candidate? you talk about elect ability. what else? >> i think they are concerned about their social issues when it comes to the right to life and, everything that they talk about nongay rights and not having gay marriage they have their religious rights use socially and economically. it seems maybe in this election
that for one thing because there have been a number of candidates because there are so many and there are certain amounts that would appeal to evangelicals for owe prom knee he would be happy to see they are split. it looks like by the numbers it might be. obviously it is a lot of them. everybody seemed to have their day in the sun with that group. >> i think you put it best i put you on the spot that is that it is complete lip in the air with 41 percent of people saying they are undecided or could be persuaded to change their minds by tuesday. thank you very much. on this tuesday night 11:00 p.m. eastern the american election head quarter special a caucus live from kelly.
